Loddon Valley Link

editorWelcome to the February edition of the Loddon Valley Link. Hopefully by the time you read this the extremely cold weather will have abated a little to make going out and about a slightly pleasanter prospect - also the road through Sherfield should be open again by then.

There are plenty of events for all the family happening at Sherfield Village Hall and Sherfield Park Community Centre (pp. 22 and 26, and also on the back page). Also the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust is worth a look. There is the Basingstoke Big Garden Birdwatch on 27 January but if you aren't in time to book that there is another event on 24 February - this time in Oakley Woodland (p. 19).

feb24 contentsThe issues facing local councils have been well publicised. Hampshire County Council need to find savings and they have launched a consultation to find out residents’ views on the future of services (pp. 38 - 39). In addition big changes are afoot in local hospital services, with a new hospital planned for Basingstoke. Details of their consultation can be found on p. 42.

This month’s cover photo was taken by Lydia Rees. We are always looking for photos, especially for the cover, and we will run our cover photo competition in 2024. We also want feedback and article submissions.
